{this moment}

{this moment}

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see. 
Wishing you a beautiful weekend!--soulemama

Project memory Bear

   Recently a friend approached me about making a few bunch of memory bears. If your not familiar with these cuddly little creatures check these out. Basically they are bears made from a loved ones clothing or a wedding dress or any thing that represents a memory that you would like to keep around. I am not exactly a bear person but i am quite sentimental so this project has been great fun for me--except the part where i can't seam to find the perfect pattern.
   I have scoured the internet, scavenged through book store and exhausted all of the library 's resources.
So far this is what i have come up with:

To big, puffy, and non-jointed.

To small, big nosed, and non-cuddly.

To strange 

To long armed.(but really cute)

So the next step is the one i was trying to avoid, i must now draft my own pattern.

   My plan was to keep it simple and just get a tried and true pattern and use it well so much for that. I am pretty sure that the problem lies with in me, obviously no one else has my vision of what it should look like and the one that does(click here-Bears)) is not giving away her money maker. We will see how this goes, wish me luck .

I Got a Package from FedEx Today!!

Yeah, that's right i got a package from FedEx and guess what was in it?
Free grub of course.

I was selected by the lovely Ms.Emily from not so idle hands for her "reader giveaway".(read about it--click here)These are truly yummy, we eat a lot of granola bars around here and these have passed the taste test!

And how perfect that they came today, we were almost out of treats.
But not any More!

Along with the delicious snacks i received a gift card to Sam's Club, so now when these are all gobbled up i can buy more!

I would like to give a big thank you to Emily for choosing me, to Nature Vally for creating such delicious treats, and to My BLOG Spark for making this all possible. Thank you, thank you, thank you--with all that thankfulness youd think i received an Oscar!

Summer Time Fun!!

We finally found some time to go to the fountain, it was Pemmies first water extravaganza and she had a blast.
First we ate dinner at Agave-yummy. The view of the fountain was blocked only by an iron fence that surrounds the restaurant, for the girls this was like being in restaurant jail. They tried to escape, one over the bars the other under but the waitress brought the food and Bridie couldn't resist. A bowl of beans and a SEAFOOD CHIMICHANGA later we were off to have some fun.

Pemmie was not to sure of the giant spouts of water but after a bag of popcorn and some serious thought she suddenly ran into the water.

A great time was had by all. Nana, Papa and I could do nothing but laughed at my silly crew of girls.
